“Rebuilding trust in our officials, Rebuilding trust in our organization,
Rebuilding the trust for Hawai‘i.”
Why I’m Running for OHA
I have come from the communities that OHA — and the Trust — are designed to benefit. I have worked alongside our kupuna, nonprofits, churches, unions, and other organizations in advocacy and social justice work my entire life. I want to help stabilize OHA and grow the Trust to fulfill its mission: improving conditions for Native Hawaiians and all of Hawai‘i. That means better healthcare, better housing, better education, and better jobs. That is my vision. That is my kuleana.
SEVEN GENERATIONS BEFORE
Now is the time for our generation to step up. Our elders have prepared us for this journey.
SEVEN GENERATIONS AHEAD
I believe trust resources would be better spent if OHA became a service-supporter. OHA should focus on helping and supporting organizations in the community that have expertise and experience, instead of trying to do everything itself. OHA should focus on activities that positively impact the growth of the Trust and the creation of better healthcare, housing, education, and jobs for beneficiaries.
I have the background, knowledge, and experience to work with the other Trustees to make that happen.
